All right. A Rhode Island High School that fired all of its teachers now plans to give them their jobs back. The news comes after Central Falls High School and the teacher’s union agreed on some new standards. Nearly a hundred teachers were fired because students were underperforming. Now, part of this agreement calls for longer hours and more afterschool tutoring sessions. The teachers will be voting on this deal today.

'It takes again a very special strong kind of person to make it through 16 years of incarceration3 and keep fighting for their freedom.'

'The only way I can think to repay them is to go out to society and prove that I’ve spent these last 16 years, preparing myself to be free.'
